Looking for a tried and tested Buckwheat and Almond pancake recipe

I only make straight buckwheat, no almond flour, sorry.

Anyone been to Ceraldi

Thanks. I can hardly wait until Wednesday

Is it too soon to talk about Thanksgiving?

This year we are having braised turkey thighs , puréed celeriac and rutabaga, and kabocha squash roasted with shallots, as well as creamed spinach.
Will think about dessert that week.

Issue roasting chicken thighs on foil lined baking sheet?

Yes, it is available.

I am a dissenter about 180 for thighs. I rarely bake chicken, preferring grilling or braising, but on the grill we go to 170 and are very happy.

I hope that this meat did not get tossed. A few more minutes inthe oven would have done

Anyone been to the new Mac's in PTown?

Thanks. Cape living seafood haters:( what a terrible waste.
The new Mac's is on the site of the late lamented Clem and Ursie's where we ate all the time.
Hope I can continue to be of help in Westetn Ma.
We try to avoid Hyannis as our visit is very short, but we do stop at WF on 495 so maybe they will have something. Thanks.

Do you remove skin from peaches, or does it matter?

For canning yes, otherwise, no

Table salt free diet and eating out

Processed foods are not healthy. Fast food is a form of processed food.
Avoiding processed food will drastically decrease on's salt intake leaving plenty of room for a healthy person to add a bit of salt to food.

Eating a pop tart is not home cooked food.

Covered Dish for a Pirate Party?

I made this sort of pirate chest cake for my son's birthday years ago.

I would use a regular cake recipe instead if a boxed mix, but same idea

Anyone been to the new Mac's in PTown?

The menu looks similar to Mac's Shack which we love.

Make ahead rice for RH

I agree that rice doesn't freeze very well. We like this recipe But to freeze I would sub barley or farro or spelt all of which freeze better.

H& O is our favorite these days. I find Magpie less compelling. Did you like it?

Why do I have to login so often

Every other day or so I have to re log in on my iPhone. Is this normal? If so, why?
This is the only site of its type that requires this.

Her post above indicates she has not decided about numbers yet. If she does not like my suggestion she won't use it, I expect.

Scenic Drive from NYC to Boston..

In Greenfield another alternative is Hope and Olive.
Rt 2 is way better than rt 9

Table salt free diet and eating out

I have also done much better since I have learned to respond to salt cravings and to lay off when things seem salty.

If anyone has a very specific or unusual set of dietary needs or theories, of course eating out is limited. That is just reality.

Honey cake and challah on the outer cape?

Yes we do too but I dislike baking in rental houses.

Since you have not yet decided, I just thought I would put in my two cents for a more traditional rehearsal dinner invite list, ie people who were involved in the rehearsal.

Honey cake and challah on the outer cape?

Here in the Pioneer Valley of Western Ma we have two wonderful non kosher bakeries which nonetheless make wonderful challah and other treats such as ruggelach.

I will probably just make a challah before we go and freeze it, same with honey cake if I have time.

What are you baking these days? September 2014, part 2!

I didn't like this recipe, it was easy, yes, but it did not have the correct texture for challah, IMO.

What happens if you freeze raw kale?

Perhaps.
It does not get slimy.
I just throw it directly in the soup, yes.
If you are going to use it for smoothies you can purée it and then freeze it in muffin tins.
